Monday's Dump & Chase: Drama, Who Needs It?

The national sports media could make a nondescript, entirely average pebble into the next Elvis Presley. Not through any fault of our poor pebble, or even because anyone wants another King, but because there just HAS to be a storyline. On Saturday, the internet was atwitter with careful analyses of the remaining teams. The narrative? The Hawks depth would be too much for the Ducks, but today the internet is littered with pages upon pages praising the Ducks' depth. Luckily that didn't allow the true story of the weekend to be covered up. Let's just hope these series aren't too unpredictable, no need to strain the poor headline writers.
